Look Hermes, it is very simple. I never argued that that the compendium was incorrect. I argued that the correct way to refer to an Elf of Irollan is Elf, not Wood Elf.

Sylvan Elf also as you can see in 50SoP:

Where exactly do they say that? As so far I've only heared Realag refer to them as "Our Irollan Cousins".

...Eruina took her followers to the small island of Farwind, in the Irisus Sea, and there she founded the short-lived kingdom of Inshanost. Attacked relentlessly by both Humans and Sylvan Elves, and undermined by internal dissensions, Inshanost eventually fell...

Younger brother to Raelag and twin of Menan, Sylsai is the current leader of the Soulscar clan. He was always the most "hot-headed" of Tuidhana's sons. He respects his brothers but believes they are slow to act.
He strongly dislikes Humans and Sylvan Elves, finding it impossible to forgive their behaviour during the War of the Bitter Ashes and the Day of the Tears of Fire, the conflicts that led to the Dark Elves' exile...

Younger brother of Raelag and twin of Sylsai, Menan dreams of returning his people to the surface and making peace with the Sylvan Elves, even if it means accepting to serve the High King of the Elves...


Quote:
An Assassin is like the shadow of Malassa.
As a Sylvan Elf is impossible to spot in the forest, an Assassin is invisible underground. He reveals himself only when he strikes. Usually wearing black clothes, an Assassin's favourite weapon is a pair of sharp and serrated daggers.

Ubi seems to aknowledge sylvan elves, no need to take it further. Easier to distinguish anyway.

I just like to point out that these descriptions are all from the Dark Elves' POV.

Just admit you are wrong, jeez

They are called wood elves, they are called so in many localizations by the way, and they stay that way. And Sylsai calls them sylvan elves, no need to look for that one particular cinematic where they are just called elves. Lol. The world is doomed until people just learn to say I was wrong.

Do the 'wood elves' call themselves 'wood elves'?

In number of localizations, yes. But do dark elves call themselves dark elves?

Wait, so there actually are wood elf heroes in the SoD expansion?
Why would the translations be that different depending on the localization?

It also makes more sense for the dark elves to call themselves dark elves as they are a magically changed people and, you know...Malassa.

No, but in the Universe itself, in Heroes 5 for example, Sylvan elves are called Wood Elves in number of localizations. In SoD, dark elves do not speak of themselves as such..

I will admit I am wrong when I am wrong.

Do you guys think there will be announcements on E3? Next expansion, Heroes VII or only things like Heroes Online and those other spin-offs?

Aye, it's been a while since release and still there is no word from devs about some kind of ETA for a patch.

Are any of our insiders here able to discern what is going on with them or what Ubi expects to be done and how soon?

Celestial Heavens sent a new Q&A about Shades of Darkness this very week, so we may get some answers soon...
